I'd like to have that! ( I'm ok with the platforms I use making money - I just want to have the possibility to (co-)own it as well! )
Is #OpenCollective such a solution?
This sounds very much like what I am looking for!
A little drawback on what I have read so far: they are us-based and they also seem to accept stripe ( and the 2,5 % they take of every $ ) as given...
Anyways, looks promising! 👍
@joachim_kreativ FYI we have a pretty-complete run-down of all the platforms at https://wiki.snowdrift.coop/market-research/other-crowdfunding
Comradery is a *worker* co-op, so the decisions are made by the creative workers who get their projects funded. By contrast, Snowdrift.coop aims to function as a "consumer" co-op, i.e. the patrons are the members.
As far as we know, Open Collective is not only non-co-op but is VC-funded, but they do seem otherwise better in many ways than most options. Their code is free/libre/open.
